Experience Sharing on Development of Low-carbon Comprehensive Mobility Plans (LCMPs) for Indian Cities
22-23 August 2013, Udaipur, India

The development of Low-carbon Comprehensive Mobility Plans (LCMPs) for Visakhapatnam, Rajkot and Udaipur is now near completion. A stakeholder’s workshop to share experiences and disseminate results was organized on 22-23 August 2013, in Udaipur, India.

The objectives of the workshop were to present the results from the three cities involved in the preparation of LCMPs and obtain feedback; to share experiences on applying the methodology for preparation of LCMPs and present a revised methodology (toolkit); to invite the donor community (domestic financial institutions & multilateral financial institutions) to discuss the financing opportunities for actions in the LCMP; to link the outcomes from the cities work to national targets for reducing emissions from the transport sector - a commitment to sustainable mobility and climate change mitigation in India; and to launch a 'Guidebook for Low Carbon City Planning'.
